THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO TITUS

CHAPTER 3

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES STUDY WITH FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES MESSAGE.
 

          Great to have you back to share another slice of Daily Bread. So far in our study of Paulís letter to Titus, weíve learned that Paul has given Titus the challenging task of being pastor of the church at Crete. This letter is Paulís advice to Titus about the elders that he should appoint to oversee the work of the church and the doctrine that he should teach.

          The elders arenít the only ones who need to have godly characteristics though, as we learned in the last chapter study. Paul explains that each member of the Church has important roles if they intend to represent the body of Christ.

          Weíve been putting ourselves in Titusí shoes, to get an idea of what it would be like to be assigned such a feat, because in essence, we are. In the first chapter, Paul warns that there are many people who are disruptive, and deceivers, who talk badly about the Faith, and we find that to be the case today as well ... even Christians who aren't mature in their faith.

          Nevertheless, Paul encourages us with zeal to hold fast (be dedicated and determined) in our Faith, and be examples of the goodness of the Lord by our lifestyle. Now letís read the conclusion of Paulís letter.

          Teach the people to be subject (obedient) to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates (judicial authorities), to be fruitful in every good work, to speak evil of no one, not to be violent, but gentle, showing meekness to all people.

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES LESSON WITH FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES EXPLANATION

          Letís grab a little Daily Bread Crumb here. What is a principality? Well, there are two completely different definitions, so be sure and understand this. Different countries have different forms of leadership, and different regions that are under their authority. The office, territory or jurisdiction of a prince is called a principality. The other definition of principality is: an angel of the third lowest rank. From Ephesians:

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

          Paul is referring to the other kind of principalities in this letter.

          So, Paul is saying, be respectful to the leaders and be meek to all, then he adds, because we also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, slaves to different desires and pleasures, living in malice and envy (jealousy), hateful, and hating one another.

But after that, the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared. Not because of any works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost, which He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that being cleared of all guilt by His Grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

          I emphasize this paragraph, because as noted many times, all too often we donít read these passages with the passion that Paul wrote them. We were fools, he says, and then because God loved us so very much, He sent Jesus to us and granted us GRACE because Jesus took our sins upon Himself. Not because of anything great that we did, but because of His great mercy, He saved us. And He washed our sins away with His blood, and sent us the Holy Ghost to renew us, which He generously gave us through Christ, so that being purified by His Grace, we are now heirs of eternal life. So we shouldn't judge others that are lost and/or new in the Faith because they ... Are lost JUST like we were. 

FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES INFORMATION WITH FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES MEANING

          This is a faithful saying (the TRUTH), and I hope that you emphasize these things constantly, that those who believe in God might be careful (be sure) to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to people. But avoid foolish questions, and stories, and contentions, and strivings (debate or opposition) about the law; because they are unprofitable and vain.

          Reject anyone who is an heretic (seeking to divide) AFTER the first and second warning, knowing that he who behaves this way is subverted (turned away), and sins, being condemned of himself.

          When I send Artemas to you, or Tychicus (accompanied Paul into Asia in the book of Acts), be sure to visit me in Nicopolis, because I have decided to spend the winter there. Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey with love, and supply them all their needs. (Paul first met Apollos in Ephesus where he was enthusiastically spreading the Gospel.)

          And let our people also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses (profess honest trades for urgent needs), that they wonít be unfruitful. (In other words, Paul is urging Titus to urge the people to do work that benefits other believers, not something that is useless to other Christians.) All who are with me send their best. Greet those who love us in the Faith. Godís Grace be with you all. Amen.

          Many good pointers for us to follow are included in this letter from Paul to Titus. Donít ever forget that weíre all really in the same position as Titus, setting the Church in order for our Lord and Savior. Any advice from a spiritual giant like Paul is welcome and revered, so keep his advice in mind as you continue your walk of Faith, and in your spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to potential and fellow Christians.

          Come on back soon and join in our next study of The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Philemon. You can always find what you need to enrich your faith and deepen your understanding, right here at Daily Bread.
